From the north of Argentina (Salto), part of this is from the highest altitude vineyard in the world, at 10,207 feet. (It’s biodynamic, too.) Which gives it a unique combination of thick-skinned richness and concentration with a pliant texture and complexity Tanzer compares to top rank Bordeaux.

 

As Jamie Goode explains:

 

This high elevation makes a difference to the wines. First of all, it moderates the otherwise warm temperatures of this northerly latitude. There is a high day–night temperature differential. And the elevated UV levels at this altitude cause the skins of the grapes to be thicker and have higher levels of anthocyanins (colour) and tannins, but also these elevated tannins are of a smoother, less astringent kind.

 

All in all, a pretty special wine for only $20…as both the Wine Spectator and British press (97 points from Atkin!) have enthused.
